From Landline to Online: Why and How a National Household Su

From Landline to Online: Why and How a National Household Survey Transitioned Modes with Sarah Grady, M.S., was recorded in April 2019.

This webinar presented the what, why, and how of the National Household Education Survey (NHES) decisions to transition from a landline telephone survey to a mail survey after 2007 and from a mail survey to a web-first sequential mixed-mode survey for 2019. NHES is a set of cross-sectional household surveys that was started in 1991 by the National Center for Education Statistics within the U.S. Department of Education. The NHES mode transition story is also one of robust experimentation. The results of NHES experiments are applicable to other household studies. The webinar will discuss the motivations to transition modes, the decisions involved, and factors in decision-making, including experimental findings related to the redesign from phone to mail and the subsequent transition to sequential-mixed mode administration. Specifically, the webinar will discuss coverage and response declines in landline telephone surveys; redesign considerations and technical input; experimental pilot test and field test findings related to mode, contact strategies, and incentives; motivations to add web, web experiment and web test experimental findings; and the NHES:2019 sequential mixed-mode experiments. The webinar will use a Total Survey Error framework to discuss mode transitions and experimentation, situating decisions and experimental results in the context of sources of survey error; trade-offs in increases and reductions in types of survey error will be discussed.

Getting Involved with AAPOR's Regional Chapters

AAPOR has seven regional chapters that provide opportunities for professionals to get involved in local events, share and obtain knowledge, and network. Regional chapters play an important role in keeping AAPOR a vibrant community composed of professionals throughout the country. Getting involved at the local level allows members to stay connected to AAPOR outside of the annual conference. Join us March 19th as the AAPOR Online Education Committee welcomes representatives from DC-AAPOR, MAPOR, NEAAPOR, NYAAPOR, PANJAAPOR, PAPOR, and SAPOR to learn about the volunteer and engagement opportunities provided by AAPOR's regional chapters. Chapter representatives will discuss the process and timelines to join their committees, showcase upcoming events, as well as discuss how members can get involved by assisting with their chapters' events and planning. This professional development webinar is free to all AAPOR members.

GIS Applications in the Social Sciences: Maps, Mappable Data

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has become a popular tool to compile, present, and understand data in the social sciences. This webinar is designed for those with minimal GIS knowledge who want a practical introduction to learn the basics of presenting social scientific data on a map and conducting simple geospatial analyses. An underlying message will be how maps and geospatial analyses can be used to facilitate and enhance current research programs. This webinar includes an introduction to basic cartographic principles and GIS in general, as well as examples of how survey responses and demographic data can be visualized using GIS maps, both static and interactive. We will also discuss how single and multi-variate maps are used in the social sciences, in addition to specific geospatial analyses. We use examples in ArcGIS, a popular proprietary GIS package software, and GeoDa, an open source free GIS programs.

Identifying Likely Voters, Pre-Election (Mar 2016)

Identifying Likely Voters in Pre-Election Surveys with Ruth Igielnik and Scott Keeter, was recorded March 2016. This webinar examines the importance of such models and a variety of approaches used by pollsters to capture this population. Among the topics to be covered are the types of samples used for pre-election polls; the survey questions used to measure past behavior and gauge voting intentions and engagement in the election; and the modeling approaches used to combine the survey questions and records of past turnout to yield a forecast. ASA members only.

Interview & Discussion Guide Development: A Quality Approach

Interview & Discussion Guide Development: A Quality Approach to Achieve Credible Data with Margaret R. Roller, was recorded in March 2019.

There are many considerations that go into qualitative research design that are fundamental to the integrity of the data. A design consideration that is central to qualitative data collection is the guide that the researcher will use to engage with participants. The in-depth interview and focus group discussion methods, in particular, require guides that effectively address the construct validity of the outcomes, i.e., how well the data gathered using the guide accurately reflect the concepts, topics, and issues that the researcher claims to have measured. In this webinar, I will discuss why a quality approach to guide development is necessary to the ultimate usefulness of qualitative data, and how to achieve it. Specifically, I will discuss: the 4-stage funnel approach to guide development (i.e., what it is, how it mitigates potential researcher effects and nonresponse, how to construct it); considerations when developing questions and probes (e.g., limiting the "why" question); examples of the approach in practice; and the nuances between an interview and a discussion guide. As time allows, I will also touch on mode differences; in particular, guide considerations for the online mode.
